Sundown Our World Yorkshire Poems

Look!  The afternoon sun sets,

And black, leafless trees throw

Their shadowy reflections into the lake.


Like skeletons they dance and move

As the wind gently teases the water.

Now, trembling they stretch their arms.


See across the dancing water.

Two small blue kingfishers sit

Discussing fishing tactics.


Wisps of cloud float across the

Fast fading, darkening, evening sky,

Settling over the moors and rooftops.


    Goodnight Sunday . . . .

              I enjoyed your company.
